What is PWN?
We are the largest organization of professional women (and a few outstanding businessmen) on the Monterey Peninsula. Members have widespread contacts throughout Monterey County and beyond. Our membership is a diverse group, comprised of entrepreneurs, professionals, and employees.
On June 9th, four PWN members graduated from Leadership Monterey Peninsula (LMP): Donna Brandt, Doris Beckman, Nancy Jarvi, and Myra Martinez. Donna Brandt, who was the recipient of the PWN Scholarship to attend LMP, was elected class speaker. Denise Kaku, LMP alum and 10 year member of PWN, received the LMP Founder's Award. Many of our members attended and many volunteered their time to make the event successful.

For: Marion Gellatly & Mary Jeanne Vincent
I attended the collaborative workshop "Mastering the Business of You" presented by Marion Gellatly, Powerful Presence, and Mary Jeanne Vincent, Career Expert & Strategist. It was a full-day workshop packed with tons of helpful information on aligning your professional brand with your business goals. I enjoyed each of the four sections: the power of your brand; the power of negotiating; the power of packaging and my favorite section: the power of LinkedIn. I would recommend this workshop if you want to tie all of your business "packaging" together in a cohesive, professional way. Thank you Marion and Mary Jeanne for sharing your expertise!
